When I signed up for my first T’ai Chi Chih class at The Cenacle Retreat House in 2004, I thought that a moving meditation would help tame my scattered brain. It does do that and so very much more!

Some benefits are natural to observe like my posture is straighter and my joints are more comfortable when I move. Some benefits were astonishing like finally becoming a mother after five years trying to conceive. Some benefits are subtle like my stamina is even and challenges in life are easier to handle with a balanced response.

Learning how to open my heart to TRUST God more in how my body moves and ALLOW His Spirit to FLOW while letting go of the stress, anxiety and distractions of my mind has developed balance in my body, focus in my mind and deeper roots in my soul for His Breath of Life.

It is this graceful steady movement that brings me to stillness and unites my body, mind and soul into a wholeness that renews me to walk in the spirit of FAITH.

I am honored to share this journey with you and I pray that you will find Joy thru Movement with T’ai Chi Chih too.

Sincerely, Janet Starr
